So- there has been knitting! I've participated in an Icelandic knitalong/knitting group Garnaflækja ,and we've had a few mystery knitalongs, which has been great fun! This last time, we made this teacosy, designed by Kristin Nicholas (she has a great blog, by the way!)
My teacosy is still not felted, it is BIG! So I really hope it will shrink a great deal. There will be photos... The teapot is average in size, my favourite cup is large. Just for comparizon.
I've also made a poncho-which I haven't even blocked yet-it is so warm and comfortable, and even doubles as a bedjacket-LOL! The pattern is Arrowhead Poncho, heavy yarn (Gjestal Cortina, 100%wool, 12st=10cm, 50g=55m, knitted on needles 7mm) Going from knitting socks on needles 2mm/2.5mm to this poncho on 7mm...it felt strange! And it is pretty hard on the hands too, but it is fun to do different things. But my next project will certainly be the Septembersocks from Sockamania! Maybe I should finish the MS3 first though...there is only one clue left... The boys went off to school with the boat today. The 15yearold has a project with half his class, and they were using boats today, and were supposed to go fishing too. He loves to fish, but is not too keen on eating it! The weather is okay, it was rather windy though, but it is getting better, so I hope they get a terrific day. Hubby called to check if he had taken the boat- the weather lately has been rather bad, rainy, windy and cold (not above 10C-or 50F). So it wasn't until yeaterday we got the boat out. He did however have a great time driving the boat last night- and boy was he happy!
Lady Gray is left with two kittens, Molly the little grey, and Tiger the stripey one. I think. Names change every day...they don't seem to be able to decide, and I'm not able to stay updated-LOL!
That will be all for now. Have a great day!
